Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a native of Longmont, CO. I'm been interested in genealogy for almost 50 years but I did take time off to raise a family. Research is much easier now then it was 30 years ago. The Denver Library and Federal Archives are not far away and that has been a help.

When I started taking photos my husband didn't come but after a visit to a cemetery that was on a one lane road on the side of a mountain he was hooked. The markers were very old and very interesting, so now he willing walks around a cemetery with me as we locate the markers that were requested. He trims the grass and pulls the weeds around the markers to be sure I get a good photo. We also stop and visit relatives and friends and look at interesting markers. The two remarks on markers I have really liked are "This is the only stone she left unturned." and "I told you I was sick."

You have my permission to use headstone photos that I have posted for your genealogy record.

RE: J.J. Taylor Longmont CO
Thank you so much for the research and info you left about John James Taylor. I'll try looking for additional information this weekend and add the noted info you gave about his burial to his memorial. Hopefully soon his burial location can be verified. It's so unfortunate the Colorado has a "lock down" for on-line research on vitals and newspapers outside of the state. I really appreciate your adding him to your list to be searched.
Thanks again

Lenora Bode
Request you please remove the photo from the memorial for Lenora Bode, # 60877442. She has been disinterred and is no longer buried in MV cemetery. So a marker/grave picture in no longer appropriate. The burial info has been changed to "Cremated, Unknown". Thanks, Mick

Thank you for showing where Betty is buried. I appreciate the information even thought there is no stone. So many people will not give you this information. Juanita Chrz

Thanks for the heads up on this. Confirmed that Joseph Sr. is not buried in this space in MV. Looked for him elsewhere and could not confirm a match. Deleted # 60873820.
